Where to do you put your efforts on editing and improving hubs?
If you were to spend time improving hubs would you focus on the ones producing the most traffic or the least?
I focus on updating content if there are changes. Or I may link to an authority site or another hubber's article.
This is my current habits when reviewing
I find it useful to review the titles and photograph capsules often. Sometimes titles can be tweaked to be more appropriate to the article. Photographs need to be either reviewed, updated, new photos can be added, or the captions need some work.
After a month after publishing, I can reread the main text with fresh eyes; but, since it takes a few months for a hub to mature, I tend not to make major changes.
The pattern so far with most of my hubs seems to be that I leave them maturing for half a day in the pot so to speak (unpublished) but with a summary and tags. This tends to increase the hubscore a little, gives it momentum. Once published I'll then visit a hub the day after and scan it for any obvious mistakes or bloomers in the text. I want to catch the errors as early as I can. If there are photo capsules to add or take away or something I don't like I'll change that too.
Then I may visit it periodically for updates and edits and the like. I look at all of my hubs over time because sometimes the odd photo capsule has mysteriously turned blank for some reason - perhaps when I haven't got the attribution quite right?
My worst performing hubs are the ones I try to improve but some seem to defy all attempts and end up being deleted.
I always focus on the following to improve my Hubs:
I use the title tuner to get a good title if the current tittle is not ranking well .
I correct all the grammatical and lexical errors
I update the content to make it more relevant
I rewrite the Hub summary ensuring I incorporate the necessary Keywords
I add video and other capsules
I remove capsules that have link to exterior pages portraying the page to search engines as a 'door way page' (Excessive Amazon and Ebay Links)
With these corrections I have achieved significant success with my few Hubs

I am screaming with frustration! Most of my hubs have been unfeatured due to lack of traffic. I write about gardening which no one wants to read about in the winter. Spring is coming so I want to get my hubs featured again, but every time I try to edit them, I either get an error...

I've just received an email announcing that I have been invited to participate in HubPro Premium. I'm a bit taken aback and more than a little leery. I'm taken aback because I have been one of those fortunate ones whose hubs are moved automatically after publication to the niche sites...

I opted in to Hub Pro and I just had my first edit. Nothing was changed except to remove three of my four amazon capsules and remove links to other websites that I included to provide supporting evidence for my claims. So I'm pretty proud that the editors didn't feel the need to change, or add,...

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some of my hubs get unfeatured after I've edited them? One even got...
